With so much buzz in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector that the DeFi Conference 2021 happening on 5th August may be of interest whether you’re a novice or a stalwart.
Hosted by Bitcoin Events, which also hosts the Blockchain Africa Conference and Crypto Fest conferences every year, the conference is being hosted under the name “The Rise of Decentralised Finance” and will explore the two hottest topics in the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency: DeFi and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
As such there will be two tracks during the conference so that it’s easier for you to find what interests you.
The DeFi track will feature a slew of speakers who will explore the factors that have led to the rise of decentralised finance. The speakers will also explore DeFi’s impact on the current financial system, and the players in markets such as in international remittance, lending and borrowing, derivatives, trading, payments and asset transfer.
On the NFT track topics such as the environmental impact of NFTs, copyright issues and marketplaces will form the topics of conversation. Sounds rather interesting and well worth a watch if you’re in the NFT space or thinking about getting involved.
